2 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: While the food isn't that bad, and there about 5 main food places, availability is extremely aggravating. All meal plan options end everyday, indefinitely from 1am-7am. After 5pm on friday the only healthy/vegetarian/vegan directly on campus and that takes meal plan closes until Monday afternoon. The food in the cafe usually has a variety of cultural meals depending on the day/week/month and sometimes it's really good. Prof's Place which is an overpriced fast food place that sells cheesteaks, burgers, pancakes, subs, cold sandwiches, and the such, but most full meals exceed available meal plan options and often you go over and have to use the boro bucks(monopoly money used around Glassboro) or dining dollars which can be used on campus dining. There a lot of fast food and order out places around Glassboro that take Rowan Card and accept boro bucks.

Rowan University has a contract with Sodexo Food Services, which does a pretty good job. With nine different locations where students can go to eat, Rowan’s biggest strength when it comes to dining is its variety. The Marketplace, which is the main eating spot, has different stations to suit any needs—the buffet-style eatery features Asian, an American grill, and an Italian station where pizza is made fresh, not heated from frozen boxes. The food isn’t bad at any of the stations, and because there are so many different places to eat, the lines are never unbearable—that is, not until late when Prof’s Place is the only open eatery.

If it is 12:30 a.m. and you find yourself hungry after an exhausting night of studying, chances are you will go to Prof’s Place because it’s the only place open from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. During those times the lines are generally unbearable at Prof’s Place—no exaggerating. When the lines are backed up, it generally takes a good 20 to 30 minutes for a meal that is made to order. That being said, the dining staff are some of the best people on campus.
